The longer you stick with a goal you want to accomplish, the more expertise you build in the respective practice.
You may have been to a couple eCommerce and freelance websites where you’ve clicked through a business social media link, and happen to be through all the clicked through all the landing pages before you hover over the ‘Purchase’ button.
What makes these websites so easy to flow through? It boils down to design. Experts in digital marketing have developed blueprint design that consists of 3 parts: Social Media Presence, Valuable Content Consumers Need, & Websites with Simple User Interface.
Before we begin to write about advanced Clickfunnels, let’s dive into what each part of the blueprint consists of.
One of the lowest overhead costs of marketing today is on social media. You can run PPC ads and sponsored content on social media, though you may want to look into building organic traffic. Sponsored content and organic content coincide. Depending on your specific product or service, either organic or paid marketing work better over the other.
For part one of the social media to website bridge, you will want to develop Klout online. Initially, it is recommended you will want to build organic traffic. Next, you will need to determine what social media platform you want to use. Upon further business development, you can expand onto to other social media platforms. Mastering one platform in the beginning, before expanding, will build your online presence in a more stabilized matter. To further describe why a classical business adage will be added here: quality over quantity.
You will need to research what platform best suits your business. A fashion company would do better on Instagram, and a law firm would do better on LinkedIn. You will need to understand what your business truly provides, and then research where your clients will primarily reside online.
Pair organic traffic + best social media platform and you’ve got the first part of the recipe down. You may want to check out a branding guide on how to make your social media presence look aesthetically appealing.
When you have your social media framework laid out from above, your next task will be to create content that adds value to a person’s life. For example, a travel blog that provides ‘10 Things To Do In Spain” and omits “Check Out My Vacation Photos’ will likely trend better.
This is because people would rather know what you’ve done to make a process more efficient. People like companies who solve their problems. If your company is a solution finder, you will likely thrive in the marketplace.
“Necessity is the mother of invention.”
Once you have part one and two mastered, you will need to have your website set up correctly to receive traffic and capture all the information necessary for you to provide your audience with the products and services they need.
What does your website need in order to convert visitors into clients?
Upon traffic arrival to your website, a well-developed website has a landing page. Depending On what type of business you have, you will need to adjust your landing page accordingly.
